Semen Special Access Program
The Donor Semen Special Access Programme (DSSAP) is intended to provide access, in exceptional circumstances, to donor semen that would otherwise be prohibited from distribution under the Semen Regulations because they were not processed in accordance with all the regulatory requirements. Examples of exceptional circumstances include, among others, a woman or a couple who wishes to (i) have another child using semen from the same donor they used for assisted conception in the past to ensure the children will be genetic siblings; (ii) use semen from a donor with specific physical characteristics; and iii) use semen from a known donor.
